The night before Valentine’s Day, the CW’s Jane the Virgin aired a pro-Planned Parenthood message in favor of fighting “overpopulation.”

Instead of discouraging them, Valentine’s Day only encouraged the liberal feminist media to tweet about “reproductive rights” (code language for abortion, among other things) this year. Esquire editor Sammy Nickalls began her Valentine’s Day tweet thread by telling men to gift women with “equal pay” and “basic human rights.” But she concluded that “reproductive rights” trumped all: “Your Valentine won't be able to stop beaming after you give her the ultimate gift: reproductive rights and access to birth control.”

While the broadcast networks are (finally) covering nationwide pro-life rallies against Planned Parenthood, they still have a long way to go: not one reported on the struggle between counter-protesters and police as they guarded the pro-life marchers in Washington, D.C. last weekend.

Twitter is famously one of President Trump’s chosen battlefields, and it’s a hot zone in the new war zone between him and Hollywood. On Wednesday, Trump called Nordstorm “Terrible!” in a tweet after the department-store chain dropped his daughter Ivanka’s brand. In Hollywood-like fashion, big name celebrities, from Chelsea Handler to Judd Apatow, flocked to Nordstrom in support of the store – and shared the news on Twitter.

In secular Hollywood, a reference to God is a rarity. But Oscar nominee Denzel Washington needed no prompting in a recent interview.

Forget Facebook and Twitter. Tumblr is Planned Parenthood’s social media platform of choice.

One abortionist is revealing his abortion religion – and one New York Times writer couldn’t get enough of it.

Even a best-selling book can’t change the liberal media’s silence on the infamous Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, according to its publisher and authors.

While the networks barely batted an eye at the 2016 March for Life, 2017 was different: ABC, CBS and NBC spent more than 20 minutes on the march. The difference? President Trump, according to the networks themselves.

In 2016, the media provided an embarrassing amount of coverage for the March for Life. So this year, as in years past, MRC Culture captured the crowds on camera for the American public to see the pro-life movement for themselves.

It’s called adding insult to injury: pro-life women (and men) have not only been rejected by the Women’s March on Washington but also by the liberal media. This month, two similar events are happening in Washington, D.C. Both pertain to women. One attracted an estimated 500,000 Americans this year, the other boasts tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands marchers every year. But one main difference – a difference the media care about – is agenda: one is pro-abortion, the other is pro-life.

Vandalism by anti-Trump rioters continued into the evening Friday as they had a standoff with the Metropolitan D.C. Police outside the Hamilton hotel.

The Anti-Capitalist Anti-Fascist Bloc’s DisruptJ20 Inauguration protest quickly turned violent Friday morning as protestors gathered at Logan Circle in D.C. and marched down 13th Street. Footage shot by MRC Culture and CNSNews.com during the march show protestors vandalizing local businesses, destroying a limousine, and chanting “no cops, no borders, fight law and order.”
